It further said: “The association has written twice to the government asking them that evaluation should either be postponed to after the lockdown ends or provide facilities to evaluate papers at home. But the government ignored our request and has announced the start of the evaluation process from May 5.”

The association said that the teachers “have the interests of their students’ future in mind” and will “resume the evaluation as soon as the situation is normal”.

They have also requested an additional 40 days, beginning from May 17, to complete the evaluation.
